At a very young age I was in abusive relationship. Not understanding the person's anger I continued to stick by his side. That was the most craziest part of myself I couldn't understand. I was not familiar with domestic violence at all. I was raised with so much love I could only understand that love would overpower anything. I continued to be a victim as I grew into a woman because I had adjusted my mental to accept it. Eventually it overpowered my love, and made me vicious, and hateful constantly taking anger out on anyone that upset me the least bit. No matter how long I stayed single I seemed to forget the red flags everytime I engaged in a relationship. So one relationship after another I allowed terror in my life, thinking it would get better everytime, and everytime was much worse. My soul became dark, and the world seemed so against me. Finally I was beat to a point that I said "NO MORE!" I ranned for help and ended up at a domestic center. With all the resources there I was able to get back on my feet in two weeks. After remembering I was never a person that didn't strive for more but( that reality wasn't acknowledged until I pulled myself away to focus on me), I was so distracted by the pain of being abused, I lost interest in beautifying myself. I then became very insecure and began to stop caring for myself, that was before I got help! So as I stepped into my new life I started to gain back everything I lost. I knew then I would never look back. It was clear to me that I had been given another chance after survivng stab wounds, gun wounds, and nearly killed after being hit by a car running from abuse.
If you are a victim of domestic violence I encourage you to find a support system to help you. As embarrasing as that was for me I am glad I took the opportunity to get myself back together. In these last 20 years I have seen alot of deaths from domestic violence relationships. No one deserves this kind of treatment, it is cruel, and unkind. I thank God, my higher power, that I am able to share this today after looking death in the eye over , and over. Because of the action I took against domestic violence I now stand firm, and believe that you too have a choice. Make the right choice before it's too late. If I had not took action I would not be alive to tell this story. The battle that was brought to me I won only because I walked away. Don't be a victim, walk away, and get help!
